Sebastopol, California (PRWEB) July 22, 2014
More than 3 million Americans spent at least part of 2013 in a skilled nursing facility, or nursing home, and similar numbers are expected as we continue through 2014. Many times, these individuals and their families encounter difficulty in choosing the right nursing home. Frequently asked questions such as, "Where will I receive the highest quality care?" "Where will I be treated like a resident, not just a patient?" and "Where is the cleanest nursing home with the best food?" weigh heavily on their minds during their selection process.
To try to make this important choice easier, U.S. News and World Report recently released its fifth annual "Best Nursing Homes" report. Using data from the federal agency that sets and enforces standards for nursing homes, U.S. News awarded the "Best Nursing Home" designation to homes that recently earned an overall rating of five stars, highlighting the top nursing homes in each state and nearly 100 major metropolitan areas. The ratings cover nearly 16,000 nursing homes nationwide and are freely available at http://www.usnews.com/best-nursing-homes. Medicare similarly rated each nursing home with one to five stars based on separate measures of quality of care, health-inspections record, and level of nurse staffing.
At the top of this list is Apple Valley Post-Acute Rehab, a facility serviced by North American Health Care, Inc. Medicare has given all 35 facilities serviced by North American Health Care a five-star rating. Statistically, less than 23% of all skilled nursing facilities in the United States will achieve this level of success. No other similar organization in the United States has consistently achieved this level of patient care.
“At Apple Valley, we take every measure to ensure our residents receive the best quality care and that our patients are comfortable and happy,” said JJ Webb, Administrator of Apple Valley Post-Acute Rehab. “We’ve made it a goal to maintain a level of excellence. We’re thrilled that our efforts have resulted in our third consecutive 5-star rating and recognition from US News and World Report.”
Residents are highly complimentary. “I’m here because I think this is one of the greatest rehabs anybody could ever ask for. I was in here last year for almost 5 weeks after major surgery; nobody can get any better care than they would here. Everybody was so professional, they care for you, they show you love, and you laugh. The care is just wonderful, I don’t care if it’s the manager if it’s the laundry, or maintenance, or nurses...they’re fabulous” is one of the recent testimonials that speak to the quality, community and care of Apple Valley Post-Acute Rehab.
